It is a weird connection your acupuncturist could explain to you, but tooth pain, even sensitivity, can be mirrored in other areas of your body. The perineum corresponds to a point on your gums just above your two front teeth for example, so it's an acupuncture point to treat hemorrhoids. Weird, I know.

I don't think it's going away on its own unfortunately. Do you have any issues with your teeth? There's a connection between your upper gums and the area you're talking about.
Frankly, because this is strange, I'd actually go see my acupuncturist about this issue rather than another doctor. They might be able to better assess where the "coldness" is coming from. Because I get the sense, and this is a slight bias towards eastern medicine, that the issue isn't rooted in something physical.View Thread
It sounds like a nerve malfunction. While your brain processes the sensation as coming from your urethra, it may not at all be where the sensation is being triggered. The nerve endings are so dense and are all processed locally in your sacrum, and this can lead to miscommunication and mis-location by the brain. I don't think that 'wetness' is one of the 22 nerve sensations your body can register, however 'temperature' and 'texture' are, and could be associated in your brain with a smooth texture to combine with cold and create the illusory sense of cold and wet.
The food triggering sensations can signal that you have an allergy.There may be a different food (or other circumstance) triggering a different nerve response that you're registering as persistent cold.View Thread
Your doctor is correct that testicular pain is always considered an EMERGENCY situation and should immediately trigger a hospital visit. To ignore it is dangerous.
I'm sorry you will not find a community here listening to share their experiences. WebMD's urology exchange it typically one-and-done where someone asks a question, gets an answer or suggestion, and then never returns to browse.
Regardless, your best information is going to come from the urologist who has scheduled your surgery. It is their obligation to explain to you in any degree of detail you demand, what the recovery, risks, and typical results are of the proposed surgery. Only your surgeon is going to know the current condition of your organs and the details of the planned procedure, plus your overall health history, and that level of fine detail is required to assess your probable experience.View Thread
There's no specific reason you should have your hormone levels tested unless you have specific symptoms common to a hormone imbalance. The number is irrelevant without symptoms.
As for the pain, testicular pain is an emergency situation. At least you went to the doctor for it, but they're the one responsible for your treatment and are the only ones who know what the examination revealed.
There's simply insufficient information here to provide you any help other than to send you immediately back to the urologist. No testicular pain is normal and you should pursue with your urologist until fully resolved.View Thread
Please don't focus on the treatments, as it's not medically relevant at this point and you shouldn't be treating yourself regardless. The book's value is mainly in the investigation process of determining what's going on.View Thread
Small and thin is probably nothing to worry about.
You may either have a varicose vein created by too roughly masturbating, or you have bruised or burst a small vessel. While it's unlikely to be a problem unless it expands of becomes painful, this is a visible reminder of the delicate nature of the structures of the penis.
Too tight a grip during masturbation can break the valves in a vein and result in problems. Regular usage of your penis over time (sex, masturbation) will change the way vessels appear on your penis because they detach from the fascia that was previously confining them and migrate to the surface. There is no remedy or treatment, and these types of changes are normal. Surgical removal of a varicose vessel is not recommended unless it becomes painful or otherwise problematic. Bruises tend to heal on their own when you leave the area alone long enough. Lymphatic inflammation is a different issue and is usually painful and those vessels have no color.View Thread
Unfortunately if this was treatable, it would only have been so when you were still going through puberty. Now it is no longer treatable because you have waited far too long. You should still seek prompt care from a urologist as underdeveloped testicles can be a sign of other serious health concerns, such as with your kidneys. It is a very poor reflection on your parents who should have been providing standard medical care and annual checkups while you were growing up, when this would have normally been discovered by the doctor.
You only get one set of genitals and you've ignored yours. Now you may be stuck with the problem you refused to deal with due to embarrassment. I'm sorry that this is the case, but you need to stop ignoring when things are strange with your body.View Thread
Hm, my answer yesterday didn't post. I'll try again.
The clinic should have been able to immediately tell you whether you had pimples or warts. In the case of warts, it would be an STD, so them indicating you do not have an STD would suggest you do not have warts. If you did, they would be very contagious, including to your hands.
If pimples, this has to do with waxy buildup from the hair and skin, which means you need a better cleaning routine. If normal soap and water are not doing the job, add a coal tar shampoo used for acute dandruff (like T-Gel). Do not pick at the area.
If you are shaving your pubic hair, these bumps are more likely ingrown hairs.
Obviously you know the risks of unprotected sex, but choose to ignore them. This reminder, while it may not be an STD, is a reminder to treat your body with more concern.View Thread
